This was in Gemmayzeh, a strip in Beirut known for its pubs and bars and restaurants. There was construction and the street was closed and a Massey&Ferguson vintage truck was parked in front of a mate’s studio there. So every time we stepped out of the studio for a cigarette break, I climbed on the truck (I have a compulsive habit of climbing on trucks btw) and we started harassing passersby to take a picture on the truck for 2,000 Lebanese Lira; emphasis was on tourists; blond female tourists in particular. We didn’t get much reaction from anyone. Until my French brother and his blond girlfriend stopped by to see what I’m up to. In the clip you see me introducing ppl, and realizing and that one of my mates had pointed out to my brother and his company as being foreigners when they were still at the end of the street; I lolled hard about that. I also offer the foreigner a discount for the picture, and a ride on the truck. Fun times.
